Does anyone remember who the third act was up there with Snap and the motorcycle family?

It was a duo. She's in red with white polka dots. He's in a white shirt with and undone tie. Is it the trapeze act? http://www.nbc.com/americas-got-talent/

Thanks. Now I remember them. AeroDuo, I think

I was shocked that the Miami dancers didn't get voted thru by the public. I was also surprised that the Russian bar act wasn't in 1st place & that the dancer was. I like the guy but I would never pay to see him dance.

And here I go, in the minority again. I didn't like the Russian Bar group. They did like 2 whole flips. To me the nails and fire are nothing but smoke an mirrors since ANY miss is going to be extremely damaging in the first place. So for me it was just pretty much the same as we have already seen from them, only less.

She did a double back with a twist. I thought that was pretty impressive.

Actually, if she got a show in Vegas she would do the same tricks every time because she wouldn't be required to change it up like they all have to do on AGT. The parrot did the same patter & the bike riders did the same act. There isn't all that much she can do to change it.

So would a magic act or any other performer for that matter. If you've ever been to Celine Dion's Vegas show, she does the same set each night.

I am bored with the bikers too. And talking about a Vegas performer who repeats their minimum hour long act every night is not the same as repeating the same 30 second or is it 60 second bit over and over with only superficial changes. If she got a show in Vegas she better not repeat the same jump all night long. To be honest, even if she did a few different jumps I still don't see how this could ever be a full-length act. At best it is would be just part of a variety show with many different performers.

This isn't to say that what she did isn't difficult and that she isn't talented. I couldn't do anything like that in my wildest dreams, it's just that now I have seen it and I don't need to see it again. I guess I have a short attention span for same-y same-y things. Many years ago the first time I heard pan pipes I thought, wow that's different and cool. By the third hearing I never wanted to hear it again. Ditto Irish dancing - a little goes a long way. I have the same problem with almost all American sitcoms. Once you see a few episodes they all start to seem the same. And of course this is just how I feel about it and you are more than entitled to your own opinion. I would never go to see the same concert more than once, the same movie, etc.

I haven't watched since the first auditions but tonight's show was a real snoozer - at least the 2nd hour, I didn't realize there was a first hour.

The Silhouettes just performed and I can't believe all the judges are eating it up - I thought it was embarrassing :scream:

I wanted to like the juggler, but he was completely off. I liked the pole guy, although i'm more interested in his pointework, and his transitions were labored. The twin sisters were dreadful and I can't believe how nice the judges were.

The magician was the best.

Yeah, pretty much none of the acts last night have a prayer of winning. I did get what the roper guy was saying about the horse, but he should have known better than to try and do a full horse act in a theater. That was stupid on his part, especially when he was trying to compete against acts like the Russian bar trio or even the motorcycle trio. Most of these must have come from the couple of audition shows I'd missed because I didn't remember any of them. I hate it when they put a lot of good acts on the same night. Some which didn't make it last week, would have gone through if they'd been with this lot.

For the most part, all the singers this year are pretty bad. Not overly impressed with anyone so far.

I wasn't impressed with any of the acts last night. It was very mediocre. Some of them were down right embarrassing. I think some of the Hollywood glitter has hurt some of the acts. I actually liked the pole guy better, in his audition, rather than his performance last night.

In general I think most of the acts on this show suffer when they get to Hollywood and have to add backup dancers. It just doesn't work.

I wonder if it was the juggler's idea to have huge blowup pics of the judges' faces, for instance. what was the point?

IIRC, the producers made some really bad recommendations last year and it seems to be continuing. Only established acts who know staging seem to get through with relatively minor "input"

I thought the Silhouettes were great. When they finished each pose, and you were like :confused: as to what the heck it was supposed to be, they showed a picture of what they were trying to do. So that made it very easy to understand what each attempt was about.

Plus, the pandering was perfectly done.
